Product information

The Sony RX1 is not only a powerful, portable digital compact camera, it’s also the worlds smallest full frame camera. Enjoy richer shots in all conditions with the creative flexibility to add your own take. It’s also ideal for everyday exploring with a 24.3MP sensor, a large aperture, fixed focal length F2.0 Carl Zeiss Sonnar T lens and full manual controls.

Key benefits:

  • A Full Frame Exmor CMOS sensor and BIONZ processor deliver detailed, vivid shots, better than many DSLRs. When you want to capture the scene exactly as it is, the Full Frame sensor has a wide dynamic range for delicately lighting and expressive colours.
  • The shot you want, how you want it, every time. The lens of the RX1 has an aperture and focus ring, as well as on-the-body adjustment buttons right at your fingertips. There’s an exposure compensation dial, exposure lock, and even a custom button for your own settings.
  • Sony’s BIONZ processor ensures clear, detailed, low-noise images and responsive shooting.
  • A Carl Zeiss Sonnar lens offers brighter, clearer pictures. It creates sharp, high contrast results, while the multilayer T coating reduces ghosting and flare, for even greater image clarity.
  • Capture Full HD quality video clips at the touch of a button. Smoothly adjust focus and exposure while you’re shooting, just like a professional movie-maker. Your audience will be impressed by the polished, cinematic results. Shoot high quality AVHCD video with every frame at Full HD 1080 resolution. Choose cinematic 24p, for clips with a movie look.
  • Low light? No problem - lens and sensor work together in the RX1 to deliver a particularly high ISO level – right up to ISO 102400 in Multi Frame NR mode, for crisper images in low light. Multi Frame NR (noise reduction) mode creates a single bright photo from six images shot continuously.
  • Macro mode shortens the minimum focus distance to 20cm and sets the magnification ratio to 0.26 for close-up photography.
  • Sweep Panorama stitches together a burst of images to create extra-wide panoramic landscapes, city scenes and more.
  • Experience the full range of tonal gradations with the Intelligent Auto HDR (high dynamic range) setting.
  • Includes: battery, AC adapter, micro USB cable, shoulder strap, lens cap, shoe cap.

Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb low light performance if you need to do interior photography without additional lighting this camera gives you tremendous performance and has changed how and where i can take photos. Expensive, hopeless without any instructions to guide you through how to use it, but a superb camera. 08 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by High image quality in low light This is a breakthrough product from Sony and I hope the first of many. Many said it wouldn't be possible to put a full size (full frame) sensor in a such a small body, but somehow Sony managed it. They coupled it with a superb Zeiss lens. This will give you an insanely sharp photos with plenty of beautiful "bokeh" should you so choose. Once the fake shutter sound is turned off in the menu, the leaf shutter is virtually silent - making this ideal for "street photography" or other situations where it's important not to call attention to yourself. The build is solid and even the lens cap is a sturdy metal one. The screen is beautiful and a pleasure to use. 03 July 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by In a class of it's own. This camera is unique in the Sony line up. The RX1 is not a normal compact camera. It's a full frame camera bringing with it the image quality you'd expect coupled with a Carl Zeiss lens. Sony had to change it's production process just for this camera. They're pretty much completely assembled by people in the factory's clean room. Normally only the sensor is made in this part of the factory. Sony often joke that they're as close as you can get to hand made for a digital camera. This camera is like having a high end SLR that you can carry around with you all the time. It's perfect for the serious enthusiast and the professional alike. 19 June 2013
